Chattels and fixtures
23. You should consider what you are selling with the property. Generally a fixture, which passes with the property, is something which is so affixed to the property that damage would be caused to it or the property if it were removed, i.e. a built-in wardrobe. Generally a chattel is something which can easily be removed, without damage, i.e. a freestanding washing machine that plugs into a power point.
The Purchasers will be buying all improvements and fixtures, together with whatever chattels are particularly listed in the Contract. The Purchaser is entitled to the property, improvements, fixtures and specified chattels at settlement in the same condition as inspected as at the Contract date, fair wear and tear excepted.
If there is an item that appears to be a fixture, you would be wise to specifically exclude it in the Contract. If the property includes a dishwasher, a purchaser will ordinarily expect that the dishwasher stays with the property.
